Abstract

In an article which appeared in this review, we have presented a statistical analysis of the relationship between water use restrictions and urban water use in Perth, Western Australia. The results of our study allow us to predict probable water use with and without water use restrictions. The purpose of this investigation is to extend our initial inquiry, and to determine the benefits and costs of imposing water use restrictions in Perth. We conduct our analysis by using data for the years 1975-1976.
